With the group stages having drawn to a close in Qatar, the FIFA World Cup 2022 will be heading into its Round of 16 stage.
The 32 teams competing at the Qatar 2022 World Cup were divided into eight groups – Group A to H – for the first phase.
In every group, each team faces each other once in a single-headed round robin format and the top two teams from each group qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022 Round of 16 – the first of the knockout stages.
These are the teams that made it to the Round of 16 knockout stage.
France, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina
Australia, Netherlands, Senegal, England
USA, Switzerland, Spain, Japan
South Korea, Morocco, Poland, Croatia
Qatar, after losing their opening two games, were the first team to crash out of the race for the Round of 16. The hosts eventually lost all three of their group matches to end their campaign on a disappointing note.
